Furthermore, they should be well aware about the gab existing between the faked reality presented in some well-known TV-shows and the daily routine of crime scene investigations.
An introduction about the basic principles of crime scene investigation and evidence securing will be done by the responsible lecturers. Then, the students will orally present aspects of the collection, processing and interpretation of chosen physical traces based on scientific literature (team work). These presentations will be the basis of group discussions, completed by inputs from the responsible lecturers.
